MTGV Update – Strategic Plan and New Judge Recruitment

Dear MTGV Members,

It’s been a while since our last update, but rest assured that things have been incredibly busy behind the scenes here, and there are a couple of key items I want to bring to your attention;

MTGV Strategy

Firstly, I’m so excited to share with you the new MTGV Strategy – the committee has worked hard to ensure that it takes into account the feedback that we’ve received from you all, and provides an aspirational roadmap for us all for the new few years.

The clearest message we received from our members was that you were keen for the Guild to refocus on the networking and community building aspect of what we do, and you will see in the new strategy plan that this is very much as the forefront.

Please take the time to have a look at the attached strategy document, we’re looking forward to keeping ourselves as accountable and transparent to our members as possible;


Recruiting for New Judges

You may be aware that we had a couple of key judging panel members step down from long-held roles at the end of last year. We have also recently had a couple more give notice of their intent to retire from their positions. We are therefore looking for some new, enthusiastic judges to add to our Junior and Senior panels. Ideally we’re hoping to build the judging cohort in order to lessen the impact on each judge’s time, so if you’ve ever been interested, now is the time to put up your hand!

Please submit your expression of interest and Performing Arts CV to our Secretary, Mark Spencer via our website here, or if you know someone that would be a brilliant judge for the MTGV, please share this with them (along with some strong words of encouragement!)

That’s all for me from now, but keep an eye out for our next update, where we’ll be sharing some of the work that’s been done on updating the award descriptions and criteria – and more importantly, asking for your feedback!
